Hornet Express Shuttle

Bus Transit

The Hornet Shuttle is your free campus transit system. Funding is provided through parking fines and forfeitures revenue collected from campus parking violators.

Since the Hornet Express Shuttle system is operated for Sacramento State student, faculty and staff usage, a valid Sacramento State OneCard is required to ride to and from campus. Please show your OneCard to the driver before boarding the bus.

The Hornet Express Shuttle makes every effort to adhere to timetables listed in the schedule, and our on-time record is excellent. However, traffic, road, weather, and other unforeseen circumstances may result in buses not operating on the schedule as planned. Consequently, the Hornet Express Shuttle is not responsible for difficulties which may result from delays or missed connections.

The Hornet Express Shuttle operates Monday - Friday during the Fall and Spring semesters when classes are in session, including finals week. The Hornet Express does not operate during summer, winter intersession, Spring Break and holidays when classes are not in session.

Your patronage of the Hornet Shuttle and Hornet Safety Escort continues to reflect a commitment to improving the air quality as well as to avoid parking and traffic congestion by utilizing alternative means of transportation.
